Just south of Santa Monica Boulevard in Silver Lake, a trio of century-old houses are set to make way for apartments, under plans submitted this week to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The proposed project, slated for a roughly 22,500-square-foot property located at 1030 N. Manzanita Street, is slated for the construction of a new six-story building which would feature 50 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above parking for 50 vehicles.

Requested entitlements include  Transit Oriented Communities incentives to permit a taller building than would otherwise be allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, six of the proposed apartments as affordable housing at the very low- and extremely low-income levels.

Warren Techentin Architecture is designing 1030 Manzanita, which is depicted in a rendering as a building clad with metal screens and stucco. Plans show that the building would include several on-site amenities, highlighted by a pair of rooftop decks.

City records list the owner and applicant behind the project as Jeff Martin of Los Angeles-based BlueView Real Estate.

The proposed development would rise just down the street from the Junction 4121 apartments on Santa Monica Boulevard, a CIM Group development which features an Erewhon on its ground floor.
